To be a Tester, you’ll need a stable Internet connection (we recommend Wi-Fi, Data is expensive in some countries) and an Android Smartphone/iPhone. To take the Tests build for Computer, you’ll need access to a desktop/laptop computer, microphone (built-in or as a USB accessory) and a stable Internet connection.
To improve a Website or App, the businesses which create them want to see and listen to people using those. So these Tests involve usage of those websites or Apps by people like yourself. Each test has few Tasks that are important for users of those website/App. So these Tests are not just multiple choice questions, in most cases.
UXArmy UserAdvocates (Testers) are people like you and me who Sign on to test websites and apps in development--sometimes even before they’re released to the public--and to provide constructive feedback on how easy or friendly they are to use.
After observing that new UserAdvocates were hesitant to speak out their thoughts out loud, we realised that some practice to take a Test is helpful. Therefore in a Trial Test, the UXArmy system evaluates and highlights problems in your feedback for instance, was it rushed through, was the environment noisy, were your thoughts not spoken out loud, etc. The Trial Test can be attempted multiple times until you succeed. In the process, you also naturally learn how to provide high quality feedback.
The Trial test is done for an example website.
It’s absolutely OK. Check the ratings and details of your submission in the App. Just re-attempt the Trial Test and you’d eventually succeed. Tips: Do not rush to complete the Test, be in a quiet environment and keep speaking what comes to your mind during the interaction with the website.
Once you pass the Trial Test, you are added to the list of UserAdvocates who would be sent the new Tests. However, if your Profile is not complete, there are lesser chances of receiving a Test. We suggest you complete your profile and keep it updated at all times.
